The yarn was a gorgeous eco baby cotton by Debbie Bliss and so soft
But the pattern, my goodness! It was a cute wrap style cardigan with rosebuds also by Debbie Bliss
The garment is tiny to fit a new born and each rosebud needs it's own bobbin of yarn or there would be lots of trailing yarn for little fingers to get caught in :( each row was taking about 30 minutes and I had to constantly check my tension. We quickly decided that life was too short and I put everything back in the bag while I finished my surprise gift for her
Modelled by the gorgeous Ivy :)
The yarn was too lovely (and expensive!) to waste so we decided I would try and find a simpler pattern to use it. I chose Playful Stripes by Alana Dakos
There was enough yarn for the second size so plenty of growing room!
I like the little details Alana has included, like the picot edging on the bottom and sleeve cuffs
I can't wait to see the gorgeous Ivy wearing it!
